We need some more threads in there.

Spinoff from the training camp thread where @THE DUKE mentioned the WR battle.

Who in your mind makes the team?

Green/Boyd/Ross are givens.  Erickson most likely makes it as a returner and backup slot option.

But that leaves Malone, Core, Tate, Willis and Morgan for two spots.  Who do you like?

Agreement on the top 4, Erickson because of special teams.  Someone will have to beat him out as a WR and/or a returner.

What I want it to be: Willis and Morgan

What I think it will be: Willis and Malone

Worst case scenario: Malone and Core

Just now, THE DUKE said:

Worst case scenario: Malone and Core

That's like some awful fantasy novel where Zac Taylor is Marvin Lewis reincarnated or something.

I can already imagine Hobson talking up Core's ability as a gunner, and Malone's potential based on training camp practices in shorts.

I think we go with 7 at WR

Green, Boyd, Ross, Erickson, Malone, Tate, Willis

 

When Green comes back they will try to stash Willis on the PS

I'm going to reserve my comments until after I see how they perform in preseason.  But atm Willis is really impressing me...

I assume we go with 7

Green, Boyd and Erickson to me are locked in

Ross is pretty close to a lock.

Last 4 are Malone, Tate, Morgan and Willis.  I think Morgan is the odd man out who gets sent to the practice squad.

They have to go 7 now with Green dinged

 

Green, Boyd, Erickson and Ross are probably locks.

 

Malone vs. Core for a spot.  Malone is better, and the 5/6 CBs *Phillips/Harris) can play gunner.  

 

Morgan takes up a possession role.  

Willis vs Tate for a spot.  Not sure who wins that one

Morgan has been returning some kicks and punts.  At least some semblance of competition instead of the Marvin Lewis doctrine of just giving it to the vet (Erickson).

Probably a little premature but I'd like to announce that I'm moving on from #WestermanHive to #WillisHive...

We need someone that can make contested catches.  Cody Core ain't it...
